The tasting locations are chosen with care based on the quality of the food and includes favorites of the tour company as well!

THE INFORMATION: Prepare to be given a substantial amount of the food and history of Hot Springs. Details about the owners and chefs of each tasting location. Each place we stop has their own story and we want you to know more about the people that fill your plates and top off your glasses here in Hot Springs. There is a ton of history in this place and the beauty and delicious food is just another part of that story that you get to experience along the way.

WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE THIS TOUR: If you love food, history, architecture, or just love to try new and exciting things this is an activity you will enjoy. Discovering more about your own town or about this town you are visiting, a place is best discovered through its food. We make our best memories when we are tasting and savoring the food around us.

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

How do I buy tickets?

Our tickets are purchased through Eztix. There is a link at the top of the homepage  that will take you to the booking site. Tickets can be purchased using all major credit cards. Cash is not accepted.

What do we do in case of bad weather?

Our tours are moderately paced and will not stop for rain, cold, sun, heat, or humidity. No matter what the weather brings the food will taste great and the adventure will continue. On rainy or very cold days we will use indoor space as much as possible. We do advise to watch the forecast and dress appropriately and bring gear that will help you be prepared for the weather that may come (umbrellas for rain, sunscreen and water for sun/heat, and jackets/scarves and gloves for cold weather, etc.). The more comfortable you are the better you will enjoy the tour. For severe weather conditions the decision will be made on a case by case basis as to whether the tour will continue or a different solution will be provided.

Is there parking available?

While there are areas of free parking in the downtown Hot Springs area, it may be difficult to find an area to park during peak season. Specific parking information will be provided after purchasing your tickets in the follow-up email.

What if I did not know that it was a walking tour and don’t know if I can walk the entire distance?

We do everything in our power to explain that this is a walking tour and about the distance we cover during the tour. We will take you as far as you can go and if want to stop that is up to  you. However, the tickets are non-refundable and all food has been paid for prior to your arrival. Even if you do not finish the tour you cannot receive a refund for the part of the tour you did not complete.

Does this tour include riding in a vehicle?

No. This is a walking tour. The entire tour is on foot. If you have issues walking please bring an alternate means of transportation (wheelchair, scooter, etc.) to follow along on the tour. We do cover 1.7 miles during the tour with various stops along the way to eat and talk but the entire tour is on foot.
